This training is intended for clinicians. If you are concerned about the sexualized behaviors a client is exhibiting it can be difficult to know the right level of intervention with which to respond. The Spectrum of Sexuality training provides a framework from which to consider a client’s sexual behaviors taking into account the following:
• normative and developmentally appropriate sexual behaviors across ages
• developmental risk factors
• trauma history
• the client’s personal knowledge around sexuality.
Discussing sexualized behaviors can be uncomfortable for some, however with some guidance around how to frame the discussion, participants can improve their ability to address an important treatment area. Participants will be asked to consider how their own ideas around sex, relationships and intimacy may affect their interpretation of client’s behaviors. They will also learn how to talk with clients about healthy and consensual sexual behaviors.
